BreadTalk pumps dough into Teochew bakery Thye Moh Chan


Fans of traditional Teochew bakery Thye Moh Chan can continue to buy its signature tau sar piah as food and beverage operator BreadTalk Group has bought it over.

The 68-year-old bakery closed its doors at Geylang Lorong 27 in September last year.

Former third-generation owner Koh Hong Chua, 66, said: "Our chefs are already in their 70s and getting on in age. My children have no interest in the business as well, so I had no choice but to close it down.

"Many people were keen to buy the brand but I wasn't interested in selling until I met Mr Quek."
